Q: On Facebook messenger (the app with the lightning bolt icon) I am getting messages from someone I don’t know. How do I block them? The only option I see is “mute”

A: You do have to dig a little deeper for the “Block” option, but it should be there …

Open the message, then tap (or click) on the user shown at the top of the message.This opens up lots of options. “Block” is all the way at the bottom.
